Power Button - Episode 6: Blasting Across Panau In Just Cause 2
April 13, 2010
It's not often that a video game comes along that sucks all three of us into the action at the same time, but Just Cause 2 from Avalanche Studios and Square-Enix has done the job. This week on Power Button we engage in a spirited discussion about the soaring highs, deep lows, and creamy middles of Rico Rodriguez's adventures on the island of Panau. Brad Hilderbrand, Joey Davidson, and I spend thirty minutes talking about how the main storyline is just window-dressing for the causing of chaos, how the voice acting could have been improved (Bolo Santosi says hello serdadu), which places and moments have been the most memorable, and towards the end we even give you a shortlist of stunts to try and sights to see. Then we wrap it all up with a close-out that proves I really shouldn't try to brainstorm new taglines while we're on the air.
